Purpose

The Mercy Fund was created for the purpose of helping members of Treasuring Christ Church overcome financial barriers to both domestic and international adoptions.

Partnership

To administer the adoption assistance fund, Treasuring Christ Church has partnered with The ABBA Fund, a Christian 501(c)3 non-profit ministry that helps churches across the country establish and administer adoption assistance funds.  Through partnership with The ABBA Fund, Treasuring Christ Church is able to help families who are adopting primarily by way of interest-free loans and occasional grants.

How It Works

Members of Treasuring Christ Church should complete the attached application, including reference letters.  The application should be mailed directly to The ABBA Fund.  The ABBA Fund evaluates the application and makes a recommendation to Treasuring Christ Church regarding the type of funding and the amount of funding each family should be offered based upon the available funds and the amount of assistance needed by the family. Treasuring Christ Church reviews the recommendation, and once Treasuring Christ Church confirms your regular generosity, confirms that you are a member in good standing, and makes a decision, the ABBA Fund will contact the applying family with the final decision. The ABBA Fund handles all aspects of the application process, including evaluation and verification of all financial and other confidential information.

Eligibility

  • Must be members in good standing.
  • Must be consistent in their giving to Treasuring Christ Church
